Electoral College

Various states are introducing legislation that would require the electoral voters for the Presidential election to vote for the candidate who has gotten the most votes in the nation.  As you probably know when we vote for the presidential candidate we are actually voting for electors who then vote for the candidate that they are pledged for (though they are not required to vote that way as has happened in various elections) most states do not split the votes so the person who has won the majority of the votes in a state gets all that states electoral votes.

I am against this since I want even small states to have a vote in the election of a President.  A few corrupt states (IL. NJ,etc.) with widespread vote fraud could determine the election; whereas, now they just corrupt their states.

There are various videos that show that most people don't know anything about politics or the government (many people asked who controls congress thought the Repub's do, even though the Dems have been in power since 2006 and this year with vast majorities).  A famous video (in conservative circles) shows a woman saying now that P.O. is elected she would not have to pay for her mortgage or food another asked about where P.O. will get the money for her says from his stash!  These people are deciding our future, hopefully the Good Lord will protect us!

The President has kept all of the promises he intended to keep. George Stephanopoulos

If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one? Abraham Lincoln

To those of you who received honors, awards and distinctions, I say well done. And to the C students, I say you too may one day be president of the United States. George W. Bush

Never vote for the best candidate, vote for the one who will do the least harm. Frank Dane

If elected, I will win.
I've upped my standards. Now, up yours
If Iowa is the 'heart' land, what part of the human body is Los Angeles?  Pat Paulsen

ELECTOR, n.  One who enjoys the sacred privilege of voting for the man of another man's choice.(DD)
